The European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU)

Infrastructure Advisory Group (INFRAG)

The Infrastructure Advisory Group (INFRAG) is one of the advisory groups of the Industrial and Scientific Advisory Board. It should consist of no more than twelve members.

This Advisory Group:

  • provides advice to the Governing Board of the EuroHPC JU for the acquisition and operation of the supercomputers, drawing up and regularly updating the draft multiannual strategic agenda in relation to such acquisition but also capability building and widening activities;
  • issues recommendations on the federation and interconnection of the EuroHPC infrastructure, taking into account, inter alia, the integration with national HPC or quantum computing infrastructures, and the architecture of the hyper-connected and federated infrastructure;
  • advises on the capability building, including the national HPC Competence Centres and widening and training activities for end-users, as well as opportunities for promoting the take-up and use of European technology solutions notably by the national HPC Competence Centres;
  • organises public consultations open to all public and private stakeholders having an interest in the field of HPC, including quantum computing, to inform them, and collect feedback.
